Use this collection of pan balance problems worksheet as a basic assessment after teaching about weight and using a pan balance. Since in a balanced situation the two sides of the balance hold equal weight, we can model simple equations with a balance like the diagrams below. These are pans in each worksheet. Things go into the two pans and the heavier pan will go down, just like in a seesaw. If the two things weigh the same, the balance stays balanced.
